Castello D’Urso Somma is an oasis close to the airport. For a morning flight, it’s an ideal location. The grounds are filled with flowering plants and there is a pool that wasn’t open when we were there, but the setting was beautiful. The guest rooms are two buildings surrounding the castle itself. Santuzza was very friendly and helpful in arranging a very early morning pickup to the airport for our friends and suggesting dinner options. We ended up going to a supermarket and having a picnic right on the grounds of Castello D’Urso Somma – very pleasant.
Just a note for others: the breakfast is very basic – the most basic of our entire 11 nights in Sicily – juice, yogurt, toast, coffe & tea. If your body needs anything more than that, go to the supermarket and bring it in for yourself. Also, the bathroom had towels, but no soap for the shower.
